So I heard the viewership of GoT for the second episode decreased by almost a million from the first episode. I hope that teaches HBO & D&D the necessity of following the books. It is already late for most characters, but maybe some of them can still be saved.
Another gem from the makers:
“You have this storyline with Ramsay. Do you have one of your leading ladies—who is an incredibly talented actor who we’ve followed for five years and viewers love and adore—do it? Or do you bring in a new character to do it? To me, the question answers itself: You use the character the audience is invested in.” – Bryan Cogman
It is things like THESE which HBO should avoid. Don’t justify your stupidity. Accept it. Improve on it.
So moving on to the episode…
No Dany! What a relief! 🙂
The Varys & Tyrion bromance continues which is very very cute!
Arya got promoted from sweeping floors to cleaning dead men.
Maisie Williams is brilliant as Arya remembers Needle & everything it is associated with. Jon Snow basically!
Maisie: One of the best finds of GoT 🙂
Jon chops off Janos Slynt’s head. Not as epic as “Ed, fetch me the block” but good. Made even better with Stannis looking on approvingly.
Davos points out the most obvious part of the vows of the NW: to serve the realm. Finally someone gets it, that serving the realm could also mean saving it from fools like the one in the South.
Margery & Cersei both trying to win over Tommen & Margery clearly winning. They remind me of the MIL’s in Star Plus shows fighting over their wimpy son/ husband.
Cersei supporting the High Sparrow.
If only she could see what this man would do to her.
Roose Bolton not trusting LF at all. What a brilliant man. The only man since Tyrion & Varys to understand LF completely & in a much shorter time than the other two.
Episode 4 preview:
- Confrontation between the Sons of the Harpy & the Unsullied
- Ellaria & the sand snakes plotting revenge
